I am sitting here at work and I feel like it has been forever since I have blogged. Yes I know it hasn't been...I think the problem comes in that I still have a million pictures that I want to upload. I can't upload to my work computer, Ben's computer is a mystery to me and the tablet is even more of a mystery. LOL so here I type wishing I could post a bunch of pictures.
Last weekend Ben went to Jackson Hole to help with the filming of a skating competition. While there, I was home with the girls. Friday was the last day of school for the girls. On Thursday they had "dance performances" at the school. I was so glad I had work off and I was able to go over and watch my 2 beautiful girls dancing their hearts out.
Lyse was very excited to see me there and excited to show me that yes she really did have a boy as a partner in the mexican hat dance (not that I didn't believe her). LOL It was fun to watch her dance and I was amazed as I watched the dancing to see that even though she had only been there 2 weeks, she was able to follow along and dance with all of them.
Katy's class did a fun cloud dance where they were all dressed in all black and then they had black lights and white sheets and they danced with the sheets to create the clouds. It was really a cool little dance. Their second dance was a Native American Ring dance. Our neighbor has a daughter in the same class and she was seated next to me. She turned to me in awe and amazed that Katy had picked up and been able to dance the dances. It was really cool to see Katy right in there and doing just as well as the kids that had been practicing for months. I guess all those years of dance are paying off!
When I can post pictures, I have some really cute ones of the girls and their dances!
Friday night we had a CRAZY night full of kids. It was WAY super fun! Jana had a widows conference, Ben was in Jackson Hole and I invited all my neices and nephews on my side of the family over for a late night stay over / sleep over! We made pizzas and decorated cupcakes. My mom and dad and Shay came over for a bit and my mom and I walked the 2 blocks with the kids to the "Big Park". They had so much fun. It was soooo fun watching little Ryker run along with the big kids. He refused to hold my mom or my hand, it had to be the hand of one of the big kids! He ran and played and he actually walked almost the entire way! He is growing up so big and I can't believe that he will be 2 this summer!
After Jason and Hazel came and got Ryker, we loaded the kids up and went and toilet papered my parents porch. The kids were the Toilet Paper Ninja Leprechauns! LOL It was super fun and we had a blast! After we got home, we got beds set up and we all went to bed. Keira and Lyse shared the queen sized air mattress put up in Katy's room; Jana and Brookie shared my bed, Dustin slept on the other queen air matress on the floor in my room and then I slept in Lyse's bed. It worked great.
The next morning we got up and just hung around the house. About 1030 we all got ready and headed out the door to go to IFA to see the chick. WOW the kids had fun!!! They brought in new baby quails while we were there. The quail had just hatched that morning and the night before and we super small and cute! (Jana later got suckered into going and purchasing some of the baby quail and ducklings...glad it wasn't me!) LOL
Sunday we went to church, I cam home and worked and the girls started to walk home and I picked them up half way home. We then went to dinner at Bart and Debbies. I then got to go up to Ogden to get Ben. I was so glad to see Ben!!!! I missed him tons and tons but it was a super fun to get to do a sleep over (which Ben would do but doesn't love).
Honestly, other than that we have just been busy with life. The girls went off track last Friday so we are having a little "summer" right now. This weekend for my birthday we are headed to St. George (SUPER excited). I look forward to swimming pools and sun!
